DRMS Garden Project

We are going to be starting a school garden at DRMS and we need your help. We have a very overgrown garden bed at the school that needs to be cleared in order to plant our garden. We are asking volunteers to come out on Saturday morning, October 11th starting at 8:30am to help us clear this area. The garden will eventually be maintained by the students and the food will be donated to the Plant a Row for the Hungry project. We need volunteers to bring lots of energy and garden tools, if you have them (shovels, rakes, hoes, gloves, etc). Please let us know you are coming by signing up on this Google Form. Thank you for your help!
